Champions League: PSG inherits Real Sociedad


By: Manu Tournoux

Paris knows its opponent in the round of 16 of the Champions League. It will be Real Sociedad.

PSG and all its supporters can breathe easy. In the round of 16 of the Champions League, the French champion will come across an opponent within his reach. It will be the Spanish club Real Sociedad, present at this stage of the event for the 2e only time in its history.

PSG is doing well

As 2e from its pool, Paris could fear opposition against a top European player from the continent. Finally, he inherits the most affordable team among those which finished at the top of their group. A stroke of luck and which contrasts with all the times where the Ile-de-France residents have inherited a difficult draw at the end of winter. Enough to augur a presence in the European Top 8 at least.

Luis Enrique’s team will still have to be wary. Real Sociedad is an attractive and playful team. She also achieved the feat of finishing ahead of Inter, vice-European champion, in her group. She also beat Benfica Lisbon. The double confrontation will therefore not necessarily be fun for Mbappé and his teammates.

The round of 16 first leg will be played in mid-February. A lot can change between now and then. PSG will pray to be able to attend this meeting in full force and in the best possible condition. The objective is to complete at least one more round, which he has not done since the 2020/2021 financial year.
